Candy Land & Daily 5!

Holy Moly! My kids are o.b.s.e.s.s.e.d with my latest creation! I am super stoked @ how much they truly love this sight word game & they don't even realize they are learning & having fun at the same time. I just love tricking them like this! Please tell me you have a few Candy Land games lying around?!? Well, I had 4 & I used to write on the cards the game came with but that didn't last too long before it was destroyed since the cards weren't laminated :o( So I decided to make a template & create my own. Everyone I know including my mother picks up Candy Land games for me @ garage sales all.the.time! I created a new word work station for Daily 5 using these Candy Land boards I have lying around. Check....this....out! 
 This is just the pretty cover for you to "pin" so you don't forget where this came from :o)
This is how some of the cards will look. Simply print out on card stock, laminate & cut. 
 You're getting flashbacks aren't you??? 
 Since I had soooo  many Candy Land boards lying around I was able to print out 2 of these & have two games going in word work at once. And let me tell you...they fight to get into this station. Better than boring old flashcards, huh? 
This particular game is Fry's first 100 sight words. I am planning on making the 2nd & 3rd 100 sets too! I am a little o.b.s.e.s.s.e.d that my kids are o.b.s.e.s.s.e.d with this so I am making addition & subtraction games as well! So stay tuned! Check out this game for ONLY $3 at my TPT STORE HERE! I am taking requests for this too! There are loads of possibilities & my brain won't stop thinking of more games to make!  I hope you decide to make the investment! Even my boys love it! Please excuse that hideous tile....YUCK!
